It's Weekend challenge time again....



Here is my card for Beate's Weekend challenge WSC42! I was a little hesitant when I saw the sketch...but once I got started, I really enjoyed it! I believe this is the prettiest card I have ever made :-) I used the paper tole technique on the right flower and the left leaf. The second picture shows a closeup of the layers. Sorry the picture isn't very clear, but it was the best one I could get! It should give you an idea of what I did! If you have any questions just let me know. The roughest part was starting out...it took several tries before I was satisfied with my watercolor image! Then I cut out my image out with my nestabilites. The bloom sentiment and bloom definition is embossed with vanilla embossing powder. I stamped the large always artichoke layer with the En Francais background stamp using versamark. Then I colored over it with elegant eggplant chalk. I believe that just about covers everything! I hope you like it!! Have a great Saturday!!!
Blessings
